IVIS Spectrum CT to Image the Progression of Pneumococcal Infections In Vivo
Imaging through the IVIS Spectrum CT system does not provide the resolution at cellular level like the high-resolution or super-resolution microscopy. Rather, it detects bacterial infections in specific anatomical compartments/organs of the animals. The IVIS Spectrum imaging system is a unique imaging technology that allows for real-time monitoring of disease progression in living animals through the use of either bioluminescent or fluorescent probes.
